The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) Security Rule addresses technical and non-technical safeguards to secure individuals “electronic protected health information” (e-PHI). LogRhythm’s log management and analysis can help your organization meet or exceed HIPAA regulatory requirements.
To ensure compliance with HIPAA requirements, information systems are monitored in real time. Investigations, reports and alarm rules are provided, allowing for immediate notification and analysis of conditions impacting the integrity of the organization’s ePHI data.
Areas of non-compliance can be identified in real time. Additional investigations, reports and alarm rules are provided as part of LogRhythm’s standard Knowledge Base to further augment the usefulness of the log data. Reports can be generated as needed by the HIPAA Security Assessor and scheduled to run at pre-determined intervals.
Cost-Efficient Log Collection and Analysis
The collection, management and analysis of log data is integral to meeting many HIPAA requirements. But IT environments consist of heterogeneous devices, systems and applications that are all reporting log data. Millions of individual log entries can be generated daily, if not hourly.
The task of organizing this information can be overwhelming in itself. The additional requirements of analyzing and reporting on log data render manual processes or home grown remedies inadequate and costly. LogRhythm can help you efficiently meet HIPAA compliance directives for log collection and reporting.
